#3929657 Learning to drive manual

Posted Slashgiggle on 21 August 2013 - 03:41 PM

Is "I drive manual because I personally enjoy it" an option? Or is this the wrong crowd for that sort of thing?

Here's why I won't put the effort into researching evolution...

If I believe in God, and he's not real, when I die, I'm dead.
If I don't believe God, and he's not real, when I die, I'm dead.
If I believe in God, and he is real, I go to heaven when I die.
If I don't believe in God and he IS real, I go to hell.

Of those 4 choices, most people on these forums choose #4... the ONLY option that sucks. I'm just playing it smart.

It's a waste of time for me to try and convince myself evolution is true.
What about

You believe in your christian god, it turns out his not the right god, the other gods angry, you go to hell

well an important part of protest is that you put yourself in the position of power, or that you are not asking to be placed in such a position by someone. Doing so admits their power over you, thus nullifying your argument as something without real power, something that can be ignored. If you have to ask, then you've already conceded the fact that they have the right to refuse, seeing as they have the same right to say 'yes'

Thats why encircling the police was important, and these protests on the whole. But complaining about the relatively light amount of force used to express the desire of the establishment and its power seems very silly to me. Of course to protest and place yourself on parity with the establishment you have to be prepared for the fact that it will lash out in the means it has to control and enforce.

So while I don't readily accept or concede the politics of the OWS movement, its tactics have been carefully scripted by very well educated persons to reflect a proper methodology to protest. Occupying Zuccotti park was brilliant, but they were always prepared for the notion they would be expelled. In my opinion they could and should have done more, the desires to infiltrate wallstreet itself and impair its function was brilliant, but too many of these protesters aren't actually educated in proper protest and established power.

When you don't take these steps you end up with something like the london riots, or you become what the westboro church has--something openly mocked and ignored as they follow all legal means of protest, but no actual means of effective protest. Once you agree to protest in pre-determined 'protest areas' you've relinquished the fact that your message demands satisfaction, and instead send the message of 'satisfy us, if you want to. Otherwise, its cool, no worries, we're not really going to do anything.'
